Scim and iceweasel

I am currently running debian (amd64) testing with some packages from
sid. It is stable for my work purposes.

I frequently have to input indic characters and scim is my preferred
input method. I have set the input method to scim using im-switch. I can
only use it in gnome-terminal that too by right-click->Input
Methods->scim. This does not work in OpenOffice or Iceweasel.

On another machine the same set of packages gives me scim
as the default input method for gnome-terminal, OO and iceweasel.

My question, how can I make iceweasel, OO and other packages like
inkscape to use scim as the default input method?
